With a blend of grated zucchini, savory cheeses, and a hint of onion, these patties are not only delicious but also a fantastic way to make the most of zucchini season. Let’s dive into the simple yet scrumptious recipe.


Q1: Can I use other vegetables?

Absolutely! While zucchini takes the spotlight, you can experiment with grated carrots, sweet potatoes, or a mix of your favorite veggies.

Q2: Can I make these patties gluten-free?

Certainly! Substitute the all-purpose flour with your favorite gluten-free alternative for a gluten-free version of these patties.

Q3: Can I freeze the uncooked patties?

Yes, you can! Place the formed but uncooked patties on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze until solid. Once frozen, transfer them to a zip-top bag. When ready to cook, thaw and follow the cooking instructions.

Step 2: Pan Perfection

  1. Heat a small amount of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. The sizzle of the oil signals the beginning of the cooking adventure.

Step 3: Patty Magic

  1. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the zucchini mixture onto the hot skillet, and then use a spatula to flatten them down into charming patty shapes. Cook the patties for a few minutes on each side until they achieve a beautiful golden hue. The sizzling sound and enticing aroma will be your guide – flip the patties when they reach that perfect crispiness.
